International law


The firm intervenes in private international law.


This specific branch of law makes it possible to understand the legal relationships between individuals, with the particularity when the courts of several countries may be involved.


These situations therefore involve two sets of questions. On the one hand, it is necessary to know whether the French courts have jurisdiction, and on the other hand, to know the law of which State to apply.


Me PARASTATIS makes international family law and extradition law a privileged area of competence. As such, he regularly deals with cases of international divorces, that is to say divorces of individuals of different nationality, or who have married abroad for example. This type of case involves the application of international provisions like Regulation No. 2201/2003, known as Brussels II bis, relating to jurisdiction, recognition and enforcement of judgments in matrimonial matters and matters of parental responsibility. ; or Regulation n ° 1259/2010, known as Rome III, implementing enhanced cooperation in the field of the law applicable to divorce and legal separation. Divorce has consequences both on property rights and on their parental rights. Also, here too, it is advisable to find the rules applicable to these particular cases, in particular in international conventions such as the Hague Convention of March 14, 1978 on the law applicable to the matrimonial property regime. If divorce is an important part of our activity, our firm also deals with cases of illicit kidnapping and detention of children of an international nature by applying the Hague Convention of 25 October 1980.


Me Georges PARASTATIS is also involved in extradition cases for international and European arrest warrants .
